We wanted a 2 night stay in the Peak district so we could visit Chatsworth House and see the Christmas decorations there and this hotel proved a good choice for that. The bed and breakfast rate was reasonable and the breakfast was excellent - a huge choice of everything! (at least 7 varieties of juice for example!) The location is very good - within walking distance of Buxton town centre - and within half an hours drive of Chatsworth. and we also visited Bakewell. We ate in the hotel both nights as it was the middle of winter and found the food , and the service, to be very good, although on the first night we were the only diners so there was not much atmosphere! There is ample (free!) parking and a pleasant outlook over the lawned garden from the front rooms. We liked this hotel very much and have every intention of returning in the better weather next summer! less

Thank you for your review. We are so glad that you enjoyed visiting Chatsworth House as we have only heard good things about the Christmas decorations this year. We can't believe that Christmas is over again so soon and trust that yours was thoroughly enjoyable. We are glad that you enjoyed the food and service and apologize that the hotel felt a little quiet on one of the nights! We would love to see you again in the summer when Buxton is in bloom. -- Matt D
